They extend the emergency epidemic situation until August 31, 2021. This is done by a decision of the Council of Ministers.

                According to the World Health Organization, as of July 18, 2021, the total number of COVID-19 cases in the world is over 190 million, and the total number of deaths exceeds 4 million. The number of new cases reported in the last week is over 3.4 million people, an increase of 12% over the previous year. At the current pace of the pandemic, the total number of cases over the next three weeks is expected to exceed 200 million.

               Globally, as of July 20, Bulgaria ranks seventh in total mortality from COVID-19 and 67th in 14-day mortality. In the age distribution of cases, there is a decrease in the incidence in all groups, and from the last few days there is an increase in the 14-day incidence in persons under 39 and the elderly over 90 years. Until July 18 in Bulgaria with the first dose of vaccine against COVID-19 covered only 18.1% of the population, and with a completed vaccination course are 16.2% of Bulgarians, which ranks last in our country among the EU / EEA countries.

               It is necessary to maintain the achieved decline in the registered morbidity in the country, as well as to prepare the health care system and the public health care system for response to a possible new pandemic wave. The strict application of health requirements when entering the territory of the country and the introduction of access restrictions will help reduce the spread of new options in our country.
